Were passionate about technology and it shows!-When was the last time your mobile phone contract was up and it was time to renew? Life?s just cruisey as you indulge your senses with the latest Bluray release on your 60 inch LCD monitor hanging in the middle of your living room while you subtly let your neighbors know about your swanky 5.1 surround sound system, as you jump on your 802.11n wirelessly connected laptop to see what your mates are up to on facebook.

Then, all of a sudden, you realize you have to make a decision that commits you to a telco for then next 12 or 24 months which seems like an eternity when it comes to progressive mobile technology, and as a result you gradually work up a sweat whilst closing off Facebook and Youtube and opening up your telcos website to try and make head and tail out of what they?ve got on offer.

TelcosIt?s a dilemma that I?ve just faced recently, only I don?t have a Bluray player, or a 60 inch LCD or much of any of the other stuff I mentioned earlier. Instead, I thought I had a reasonable handle on what these Telco?s were doing, and how they were selling it, until I opened up the plethora of telco websites and took a look at all the new electronic gadgets designed to make our life more communicative.

It was time to break free of the contracts the phone companies had on offer, so I?ve embraced the world of contract less mobile communications, and I?ll tell you all about the pro?s and cons later on todays show.
